County IT department = Nazi
This session on social networking was practically useless, as the Steele County fun police have blocked any web site that they have heard of people using for non-work purposes. I think that the bigger issue here is not what the implications of social networking sites will have on work in the future, but how IT departments will learn to co-exist with how technology is used. I believe that many of these people take their jobs way too seriously, and they are like the security guard that likes to behave like a police officer. They have little authority, but they agressively over-extend what they do have. I think that there needs to be some serious discussion within this profession as to whether they exist to assist people with their jobs or to act as a supervisor by proxy to determine how people are using their time and whether it is appropriate.
